CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Campbellsville University's School of Nursing held two large medical clinics and two smaller clinics in Haiti on a mission trip July 23-29, 2014.
A team of 20, including Angie Atwood, assistant professor of nursing, current nursing students, nursing graduates and members of the community, held the large medical clinics in countryside churches and two smaller clinics at orphanages.
"We prayed with each family at the clinics and provided physical needs using medications and beans and rice to over 1,100 Haitian people during our time in Haiti," Atwood said.
"We loved playing with the children at the orphanages and the team was heartbroken as we witnessed them eating and sleeping on the concrete floors," she said.
Atwood said the group toured two hospitals in Haiti and all gained an increased awareness of the United States being a blessed nation with modern healthcare resources.
"We all gave thanks for air conditioning in our homes, clean water and soft beds," she said.
"It is hard to understand why we are so blessed, and they suffer with extreme poverty, but we know that God is good and we were used to glorify Him as we shared the gospel and helped me the physical needs of the Haitian people," Atwood said. This is the fifth mission trip to Haiti by Campbellsville University's School of Nursing. Joan C. McKinney is news and publications coordinator, Campbellsville University
